How to make...
~ Trim decorative paper to cover the base of the card blank, round the corners before attaching it using double-sided tape.
~ Stamp CLARA using the Rich Cocoa and colour with Promarker's, fussy cut around the edges.
~ Use the dies to cut out the cogs and gears and scalloped borders and a scalloped posy.Attach a length of cream ribbon to one of the borders and a strip of lace along the bottom of the card blank.
~ Ink  the edges with the brushed corduroy distress ink and attach to the card as shown using  silicon glue.
~ Stamp the 'With Love' from one of the MORE THAN WORDS collection's, add to decorative paper and attach with foam pads over the scalloped borders.
~ To finish embellish with the scalloped posy, add a dew drop to the centre, the flowers and pearls.
I love this colour combination.
